The East Carolina University on Tuesday expressed regret of any embarrassment that might have resulted from controversial appointment given to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.

A worker of the university had sent a letter to the governor appointing his as a Senior Mentoring Scholar and Visiting Full Professor of e-governance and International Affairs on of the institution.

The school had subsequently denied the appointment, making the state government to demand apology.

In response, the university expressed regret and also acknowledged the governor’s educational accomplishments, saying, “You have appropriate credentials generally held by those appointed to faculty positions.”

The letter, signed by the Interim Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. B. Grant Hayes, said the content of the letter earlier forwarded to the governor was not the intention of the university to ignite any embarrassment.

“I regret that this situation has caused you some measure of embarrassment, as that was neither the intention of Carolina University, nor was it the reason for the letter,” it added.
